♪♫♪♫ "Mamacita, donde esta Santa Claus?" ♪♫♪♫
As I think I have mentioned, my boss, Scotty Claus is multi-lingual, so I couldn't very well get through this Living Christmas alphabet without a little international flair. If you've never heard this Christmas song, check it out on youtube (link below) it's really cute.
M is also for Monterey Pine, another one of the types of trees you can rent from The Living Christmas Company. I tried to find out some fascinating backround story about these trees, but really the only thing I could find was that they were "first noted" by a guy named Thomas Coulter while he was in, yes, you guessed it! Monterey, California. The scientific name for this tree is Pinus Radiata, which I think sounds like the name of a Christmas tree angel or something. Doesn't it? I even looked up Thomas Coulter, and there wasn't a whole lot a fun stuff about him either. He was Irish, which earns points from me. He was known for his work in Mexico, which I suppose ties in the cute little Christmas song I picked out.
Sometimes you have to be creative.
